We have a bulletin board in the gym dedicated to students who reach bronze, silver, or gold level status. 3 of the challenges are individual and done for a certain amount of time, while the other 3 are cooperative in nature and are done with a partner or group.
Medal winners will also receive a PE Central lapel pin at the end of the year to recognize their achievement! Students are encouraged to practice at home or at recess too!
1.) Being able to hula hoop for 20 seconds
2.) Being able to keep a tennis ball up in the air, bouncing it off a racket while keeping at least 1 foot in a hoop for 1 minute.

Students took turns timing each other with stopwatches & iPads to see how long they could go and how close they could get to completing a challenge.
